Dallas Helicopter Accident Attorneys

We've Recovered Billions for Clients by Putting in the Work a Case Requires

Helicopters offer certain advantages over other aircraft, specifically related to their smaller size, their ability to make difficult maneuvers, and the fact that they can operate close to the ground and hover in place. This is ideal for shorter trips, rescues, and police or news surveillance. If a helicopter operator is inexperienced or careless, however, or equipment malfunctions, the results can be catastrophic.

If you lost a loved one or were catastrophically injured in a helicopter crash, just getting up in the morning can be difficult. It may seem like you’ll never be able to move on without answers.

The Risks of Helicopter Flight

Because helicopters operate closer to the ground than other aircraft, they are at a higher risk of facing hazards like power lines, trees, and the ground itself when visibility is poor. The pilot must be vigilant and have the training to properly maneuver the aircraft, and the helicopter and all its systems must be in perfect working order. A single mistake or defect could spell disaster for everyone on board.

A helicopter accident may be caused by:

  • Operating a helicopter outside of its limits and capabilities
  • Operating a helicopter in unsafe weather/environmental conditions
  • Operating a helicopter without a license
  • Improper maintenance
  • Defective helicopter parts

Taking a Closer Look at What Causes Helicopter Crashes

According to a 2016 presentation on helicopter accidents by the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST), the leading “immediate” causes of helicopter crashes were:

  • Errors (38% of accidents)
    • Inadequate pilot judgment
    • Flight below minimum safe altitude
    • Misassessment of weather
    • Poor circumspection
  • Violations (33% of accidents)
    • Minimum safe altitude violations
    • Weather minima violations
  • System Failure (22% of accidents)
